Get An American Classic - The Epiphone Dobro Hound Dog Round Neck Resonator in Vintage Brown
The Dobro® resonator guitar has been an American classic since its arrival in the early 1920's. The wood resonator or resophonic style guitar became a national phenomenon thanks to Dobro pioneer Bashful Brother Oswald, who became the instrument’s virtual ambassador, performing it weekly on the Grand Ole Opry for over 60 years. The resonator guitar is still an iconic instrument for bluegrass and traditional American music. In the last decade, popular artists in country, blues, and bluegrass have rediscovered the beautiful and challenging Dobro.
Historic Tone With A Twist
In addition to the bridge’s ebony saddle which sits atop a maple base, the full warm tone of the Hound Dog Round Neck is enhanced and projected by a new proprietary nickel plated Dobro® cone with a nickel fan cover plate, round sound holes with screens, and classic f holes.
A Legend Reborn
The Dobro® Hound Dog Round Neck is stunning in both appearance and tone and features a maple wood body with 3.5" depth and a classic single cone resonator/spider bridge construction. The round mahogany neck joins the body at the 12th fret and has a classic 25" scale and 19 frets, a standard 12" radius, and a 1.75" nut. The single action adjustable truss rod comes with a classic "bell" cover. Most vintage Dobros® now suffer from years of wear and tear along with an out-of-reach price tag that puts them beyond the reach of most musicians. The Dobro® Hound Dog Round Neck brings back the cherished Dobro sound with modern building techniques that can last for a lifetime of playing and at an affordable price. The Hound Dog comes in a beautiful and distinctive Vintage Brown (VB) color finish.
The Hound Dog Round Neck includes Epiphone’s all metal hardware including premium Grover® machine heads and a nickel plated tailpiece.
